"But Crossing America reminded us that the most influential voices in the 2008 election - the most open contest since 1928 – are those in flyover country. Once the parties choose their candidates, these are the people - cynical and anxious, unimpressed and disillusioned - who still have to be persuaded."
I'm glad they took the time for that road trip. And I was pleasantly surprised that "we" weren't characterized as bumpkins.
I don't "hate" Hillary. I don't agree with her philosophy of life, her politics, etc.

The real message of the article is that whoever wins the nomination from either party needs to be able to govern and lead the whole country. The other part of the article that is significant is that people are looking for leadership not politics.
(BTW the title, tone and tenor of the post are another example of a hit piece.)

This graphic represents why I think conservatism is wrong for the future of the country:
The cost of tax cuts for the highest-income 1 percent of households will exceed the entire 2006 budget of the Department of Homeland Security. It similarly will exceed the entire 2006 budget of the Department of Veterans’ Affairs. And it also will be greater than the combined budgets of the Departments of Housing and Urban Development, Energy, and the Environmental Protection Agency.
Taking money from those who really need the help to give it to those who don't need the help is just wrong. It is reverse Robin Hoodism.
